Infested with cockroaches. I've seen nothing like it in my life. It was like a bush tucker trial. When I told the staff they acted like I was the only person who had seen this. If my room was so bad, I think other rooms would be to. I had to move out in the end because they were on the bed. Vile, I would never stay here again!

It is worth knowing there is no secure personal place to keep your valuables and the "computers with internet" paid for are too old and badly-maintained to be worth it. You pay the price for such low rates - expect hit and miss customer service from often unfriendly reception staff (who over our stay doubled as cleaners meaning reception was "shut for ten minutes" regularly). Glebe is a FAB spot for a young person's long-term stay, full of European working holidayers - poor service though.
